Scholarships

Make a difference in the lives of most deserving students by donating to scholarships. Your generosity can help lighten a student's financial burden and allow them to focus solely on their education. 

Below we highlight some of our major gift supporters that have generously invested in our MSHA program and its students.

  • The Beasley-Hall Family Endowed Scholarship in Health Administration

    Ken Beasley (MSHA Class 19) established a scholarship to support MSHA students after witnessing the impact that UAB HSA alumni are having in health care at the HSA 50th Anniversary Celebration. His gift supports residential MSHA students. Beasley attributes Dr. Houser’s example of generosity and commitment to him and his classmates, as well as other students, as his motivation to give back. Beasley’s son, Parker, joined the HSA family in Fall 2017 as a part of MSHA Class 53.
